A match made in surrealistic heaven happened in 1945 when Salvador Dali and Walt Disney decided to collaborate on a piece, a piece that was unfinished (budget issues during WWII) but then picked up in 1999 again by Roy Edward Disney and finished with the help of 25 animators. They went thru Dali’s notebooks provided by Gala Dali his wife and the storyboards that John Henchy and Dali created in their 8 months of working together. It’s a tale of Chronos dealing with the personification of time and the inability to make real his love for a mortal or as Disney put it “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”
This work is stunning in detail and thought while the music makes each movement and flap real in it’s own Dali essence. If you haven’t seen this beautiful fluid and haunting short then enjoy, if you have seen it then I’m sure you’re enjoying it again!
